I quickly realized that I would need to buy a sample dress off the rack, which added to the pressure of finding just the right wedding gown. I shopped in my home town of Albany, and visited other dress shops in Thomasville, Tifton,...

Our Top Ten Blush Wedding Dresses | blush wedding dress

Our Favorite Fad: A Blush Wedding Dress Colored wedding dresses. They seem to be here to stay. These gowns add a new twist to even the most classic of fits, and yet we are having a hard time accepting them. Strangely though, there is one color that we cannot get enough of: blush pink wedding dresses. Not only are they subtle, but they actually make wedding dresses look more vivid in photos than just a regular white. There are many gorgeous blush bridal gowns, but we are happy to present our favorites. Why we love it: The dress combines classic...

The flowers are made of velveteen leaves and netting ribbon. There are also flowers made of organza and the dress features layers of tulle. When we received the wedding dress, it was slightly dirty inside the bodice, with dirty hemlines. Nicole, like many brides, was also concerned with oxidation and fumes.
